LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) deliver numerous advantages over traditional lighting methods, including energy efficiency, long service life, high durability and design flexibility, easy dimming, silent operation, and a wide range of available colors.
Designers employ LEDs as displays and indicators on traffic signals and electronic billboards and in a variety of automotive applications. LEDs are also used in remote controls, movement sensors, for backlighting in LCD TVs and laptop computers, and as key components in optocouplers and other optoelectronic devices.
The future of LEDs is even brighter. The performance capabilities of LEDs continue to increase and the focus of designers continues to shift toward creating more energy efficient and cost effective designs, making LEDs an increasingly valuable tool in home and office exterior and interior lighting and in a variety of industrial and medical applications.
